Maternity protection, labor law, working hours, parental leave, special protection against dismissal
Especially for expectant mothers (and also fathers), many legal questions arise with regard to the Maternity Protection Act and the compatibility of family and career. 👨👩👧👦
Many employers feel that mothers need to make up the time for mandatory physicals or often have pregnant women work overtime. In addition, vacation entitlements are also often linked to the mother'smaternity protection period. In all cases, however, the Maternity Protection Act grants employees comprehensive protection in this area.
Apart from that, pregnant women are not allowed to work at all in many areas, so that the unborn life is comprehensively protected. In times of Corona, comprehensive work and a lot of contact with a large number of people can also be seen critically, so that a ban on employment is not ruled out here either.
The Maternity Protection Act also plays a key role in the dismissal of pregnant women: it grants pregnant women comprehensive special protection against dismissal, even in times of corona.
